Perception, Cognition & Interaction

Peter Sturm © Inria / Vanessa Peregrin

"The 700 people in this research field, divided into 43 research teams, are studying communication with the physical world in all its forms: textual, visual and auditory. These researchers are looking at perception through the medium of sensors, data and knowledge modelling, and concrete interaction with the physical world. Their research is being conducted in close collaboration with manufacturers and often results in software transfers and start-up formations. It is applied to such diverse sectors as multimedia (searches for images in databases, for semantic content on the Web), security (video surveillance), transport (intelligent vehicles) and health (diagnostics aid). There are three major challenges for the future: combining machine learning and semantic interpretation, taking heterogeneous signals into account (including text, images, sounds, touch, etc.) and, finally, addressing problems of a very large spatial and temporal dimension (for example, heterogeneous sensor networks operating around the clock)."
